    Do not understand...

    Why people hate on Randy Foye? He's giving us points. You aren't going to shoot 60% every damn night. Remember #8 last year, he was washed up, played decent about 55% of the time.

    Randy is under 30, was drafted in 08 in the top 10, and was considered to be a promising player in the NBA out of Nova. He was treated as the Alec Burks of Minnesota, yet still managed to put up over 10 points per game his rookie season. (And averaged over 10 ppg on each team he played for).

    But us people here on this forum look at him as a thief to Burks, and regardless of if he is draining his 3's or not, he is still hated for his defense on guards, chucking, etc.

    He's by far more efficent than Smiles and he showed what he was capable of doing in Washington.

    I do have a problem with him guarding Kobe, though. But thats Tyrone's fault, not Macho Man Randy Foyage's! He's the perfect 6th man off the bench. Here in Jazzland though, (JazzNation if your Harp) you are looked at as an alien, and are unwelcomed by half of the members of a fan forum just because youre taking minutes away from a rookie.

    Whatever though, you all will never be satisfied! You guys want Jerry Sloan back so we can bask in years of mediocrity until the old man passes on.

    I think most of the hate is because we'd rather see Burks play over Foye. Foye is a good pick up and deserves minutes, there's no doubt about that, but the frustration of not seeing Burks on the floor at all can be blinding.

    His lateral movement is abysmal for a guard.

    Having said that, his block on Artest tonight was a thing of beauty.

    I think the Lakers got quite a few of those tonight.
    Jazz on pace to lead the league in fouls.

    If the rest of the league weren't such sissies and floppers we wouldn't get so many calls.

    Stupid refs.
    Gobert has a serious defensive gravity.
